Activated Charcoal Info

Carbon from burnt wood or vegetation is treated with oxygen to create highly porous activated charcoal with a vast adsorbent surface area.

Toxins in the intestinal tract attach to the surface of the charcoal particles (adsorption), and are excreted via the bowels. The body does not absorb any of the charcoal.

The ancient Greeks, Hindus and Egyptians all knew the value of charcoal as a filter to aid digestion, remove odours and relieve intestinal bloating, gas and constipation.

Activated Charcoal Benefits

Activated charcoal can adsorb and remove ingested impurities and toxins including chlorine, heavy metals, viruses, bacteria, parasites, food poisoning, drug overdose, pesticides, herbicides, industrial pollutants, insect and snake venom, and toxic gases. It is an effective and safe intestinal cleanser.

Its action on the colon is very mild and the intestinal mucous membranes are undamaged. Nutrient absorption is not interfered with and there is no reduction in levels of essential minerals in the body.

Combine activated charcoal with fibre to enhance elimination.

Activated Charcoal Side Effects

Stools may appear black. Intestinal obstruction or constipation may result unless taken with plenty of water. Nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort and diarrhoea may occur if a poisonous substance is being eliminated. Contraindicated if elderly, pregnant or breastfeeding as there are no studies on humans available to support its safe use in these groups. Can bind to some medical drugs so consult your health professional before taking it if you are on any medication. Don’t take with other supplements. Allow a 2 hour gap so it does not interfere with absorption of supplements. Do not use activated charcoal if an accidentally ingested substance is an acid, an alkali or a petroleum product.

Product Reviews

  • Excellent product, highly recommended

    Very affordable and I am never without it! Best to be taken on its own without other medications as it may prevent other meds from being absorbed. Works wonders for all sorts of tummy aches, upsets and discomfort and absorbs impurities in the body. Even works a charm on that "morning after headache" due to too many wines the night before. Well worth keeping on hand.



  • Effective

    These capsules have effectively stopped the flatulence I was experiencing from using protein powders and in general. I take two every morning and the farts are gone.



  • ups

    I mainly wanted to just 'like' the previous comment!! so funny - and really handy to know, effective not just for humans lol!! (HP - would be great if you could include 'like' buttons for your feedback comments - I always look at comments)
    These caps are a staple in my natural med box - I first used them for food poisoning, now I take them whenever my stomach is feeling acidic or playing up due to something I've eaten. I also dissolve them into water and use them as an eye drop cure when I occasionally get a bloodshot eye, or conjunctivitis. They are fast, gentle and effective.
